15 Spiralized Meals That Make Great Lunch Leftovers

15 spiralized meals that make great lunch leftovers

I used to dislike eating leftovers for lunch the next day. To me, every single meal is so precious, that I actually refer to every meal as a “credit” and treat each individual “credit” as an opportunity to try something new.

However, while it would be great to have a total food experience at each meal, that’s not always the case, as things like our schedules take control and we’re left scarfing down a slice of pizza or a protein bar on our way in between meetings.

The solution? LEFTOVERS.

Especially because I cook all the time for this blog, I always have leftovers. Lu used to get bummed out when he’d see something I posted on Instagram and then come home only to see that it wasn’t saved in the fridge. I would give it away to the doormen, thinking, “I don’t want to eat this again for dinner! I want something new!”

Now I’ve smartened up, or maybe I’ve just gotten busier and now appreciate leftovers. However, certain spiralized meals don’t make great leftovers. Have you seen my meal planning post?

These are meals that work well as dinners and can be saved (so make extras!) for lunch the next day, whether you’re bringing it into an office or reheating it at home.

  1. Cheers to #5! I got a dinner and two lunches out of that a couple of weeks ago; I made it for my parents this past weekend as well, and they LOVED it! Sadly, I couldn’t bring my spiralizer from NYC to CT, so I had to make cucumber ribbons with a peeler…amazing so tedious something like that is now. ;-)

  2. I’d also add your al fresca zucchini pasta salad – it’s one of my favorites and it keeps for a really long time! :-)

    I made #11 recipe up last week & I loved it. I am finally trying to make more spiralled recipes. Not sure what has taken me so long. Somedsy I hope to have your inspiralizer but at present the Canadian $ is too low & my budget too tight!

  4. I think this is my favorite of your posts ever. I want to make everyone of these recipes tonight!!!

  5. I signed up for your emails. I did not get your Starter Guide.

  6. Everything here looks amazing, especially the vegan fajitas and buffalo cauliflower!
